Youth converge to re-imagine safe spaces in Zamboanga

CREATING IDEAL SAFE SPACES FOR THE COMMUNITY

Armed with nothing but a handful of art materials, their creative spirits, and the hope for a safer Zamboanga, almost a hundred youth came together to re-imagine safe spaces in Asia’s Latin City last August 17 at Palacio del Sur, Zamboanga City.

In line with the National Youth Commission’s celebration of International Youth Day with the theme “Safe Spaces for the Youth,” miniature models of the ideal safe community were built by the youth as an output during “SUGPAT Youth Talks #2: Creating Safe Spaces for the Youth.”

This is the second iteration of the SUGPAT Youth Talks, a series of fora uniquely designed to discuss timely issues and programs, identify areas of convergence, and leverage resources for better outcomes for Filipino children and adolescents. READ MORE>>>

FINDINGS REVEAL SUGPAT'S IMPACT ON PARTICIPANTS 

A study revealed positive changes that happened to artistically-inclined and talented out-of-school youth who underwent arts and media training through Ateneo de Zamboanga’s SUGPAT Alternative School for Peace-building and the Arts.

Published in the Journal of International Development, a research by Jonalou S. Labor, PhD entitled the “Role of Art Education in Peace Building Efforts Among Out-Of- School Youth Affected by Armed Conflict in Zamboanga City, Philippines” featured the SUGPAT program.

The research looked into the value of art education in helping out-of-school adolescents to reintegrate to the local community caused by the September 2013 armed conflict in Zamboanga City. It was participated by 34 students who underwent the the flagship program of Ateneo de Zamboanga’s Center for Culture and the Arts.

ALSPA UPDATE: SUGPAT fellows immerse in children’s rights, youth legislation, and human dignity

SUGPAT ALSPA'S FIRST TERM OF CLASSES

The 33 SUGPAT Alternative School for Peacebuilding and the Arts (ALSPA) Fellows underwent sessions on children’s rights, youth legislation, and human dignity for the first term of their classes.

“For the first half of the curriculum, we wanted to establish a solid grounding and focus on the core of the fellows. We believe these topics are the necessary foundation before the fellows proceed to their project management classes in the second term,” Rogin Eribal, SUGPAT Education Specialist, said.

At the end of the program, the SUGPAT Fellows are expected to develop a capstone project which will attempt to address an issue in their community. READ MORE>>>
